Book Review: Misadventures of the First Daughter

Misadventures of the First Daughter (Misadventures, #3)

Book Blurb from Goodreads:

Charlotte Daley is the daughter of the newly elected POTUS. An only child, she's both spoiled rotten and entirely neglected by her powerful family. She's been forced to eat with the right forks, smile at all the right times, and be the picture of perfection for months. Now that her father is in office and too busy to know she exists, she's determined to exercise her new freedom before she heads back to college in New York. Zane Parker has one job-to protect the president's daughter, all day, every day. But she's been on a partying spree since the inauguration, heading down a dangerous path that threatens to ruin her reputation and cause a major scandal for her father. Zane will lose his job if he can't get her under control. Except he wants to sleep with her as badly as he wants to set her straight. She needs discipline. And he might be just the one to give it to her. When unexpected circumstances tie Charlotte to DC for the foreseeable future, Zane makes her an offer that's anything but honorable. He'll give the first daughter all the thrills she's seeking in exchange for one thing ... Her obedience. Fascinated by Zane's dark promises, Charlotte agrees. Submission has never felt so good. But as Zane brings her deeper into his forbidden desires, enemies surface and danger lurks ...

Book Review:


I want to say that I DNF'ed this book. But that would be lying. I actually read the first half of the book and then skipped to the last 2 chapters to read the ending. To be honest. I just wanted to know if the story went somewhere without actually spending the whole time reading it.

This book was just not my cup of tea. I tried, I really did. I even read parts of it out loud to my hubby. (Not that he cared) I just couldn't get into the characters or the plotline. I felt that it was predictable and took forever to get somewhere. I really didn't like the characters. I thought Zane was not mysterious enough and Charolette was too whiny and needy. She was in her twenties. Not a child anymore!

I did like the ending. It wrapped up the story nicely and satisfied my need for a happy ending.

  1. I don't think this would of been a book for me anyway, from the minute you mentioned the bodyguard I knew where this was heading. Nice review.

  3. Doesn't sound like one I'd like, but I have done the same finished, but not completed reading cheat with books that I just couldn't get into.

  4. If I cannot finish a book, I will DNF it. I really don’t care what Happens in those few cases. Good that you did what you could.
